Best Keto Pork Recipes On The Internet

This series is a follow-up to the keto chicken recipes I posted.

I wanted to give you more recipes so you're not just looking at chicken recipes wondering where the options are going to come from.

As with any diet, being able to have options will help you stick to your diet. But, too many will overwhelm you.

I suggest finding anywhere from 10-15 recipes you like and repeating those throughout the month until you're comfortable with eating a keto diet.

For anyone starting a keto diet, I usually recommend keeping things simple. The easier your meals are the more likely you won't fall off track.

These keto pork recipes are pretty easy to make and won't take a whole lot of time or effort to make.

This combines my love of stuffed peppers and pork together in one meal. I pretty much devour this anytime I make it.

It's super simple and you can make extras to save for lunch the next day.

If you can't handle jalapenos then maybe leave those out of the recipe. It's still worth it with our without the jalapenos.

These pork chops are super tender and moist. One thing I always fear is overcooking my pork chops and making them really dry.

With this dish, it's as easy as putting the pork chops in a glass dish or pyrex dish, seasoning them and putting them in the oven.

If you want to have your food come out at the same time you can put some asparagus in the dish too.

The creation of the Air Fryer has changed my life. You don't have to fry things in oil anymore to have “fried” foods.

Give this recipe a shot and I promise you'll never think of a fried pork chop the same again.

You can make some keto friendly gravy and drizzle it on top too!

Oh man, this recipe right here brings back memories for me. It reminds me of smothered fried pork chops and mashed potatoes.

And, yes, it's just that good too. The gravy makes this dish so much more than if you didn't make it. 

So, don't forget the gravy and creamy cauliflower mash!

I love a good pulled pork as much as the next person, but this one on the keto friendly bun just takes the cake and makes me happy.

Pizza and pulled pork always seemed like a weird thing to me, but my husband loves it.

And, this one was a winner. We just happened to leave off the green bell pepper because my husband detests them after deploying overseas twice (they used it in everything way too much).

Try adding another slice or two of bacon and frying it up to sprinkle on top. I don't think you can ever have enough bacon.

Zucchini noodles are just fun, fun, fun. When I first saw this dish the name of it kind of put me off because I had no idea what it was. 

But, after looking at the ingredients I realized it might not be that hard to make. So, I gave it a shot and fell in love.

I love Asian food and this one makes me happy. Don't be afraid to try this dish. All the ingredients are linked to Amazon so you won't have to attempt to find them in a store.
